Those for and against an anti-bullying bill gave emotional and passionate testimony Tuesday at the Senate Education Hearing at the State Capitol. Critics say language in the bill which protects specific group, including gays, threatens religious freedom. But supporters say the bill protects all students. Two-hundred people waited in line to get into the hearing. Many, like the Ross family of Forest Lake, were forced to watch in an overflow room. They support the bill because sixth-grader Jake Ross was bullied while in second grade.
Principal Dave Adney is still puzzled by the media frenzy he started last fall when he asked Minnetonka High School students to refrain from wearing tights and leggings as pants.
